FIAFA _Fashion International Annual Fashion Avenue (FIAFA) 2016

So many talented fashion designers came out to mark the event and show their amazing development and talent in an area that prowess isn’t easily attained & recognised without some sort of professional qualification and exposure.

The styles, the cuts , the designs the models and more importantly the organisers made it an event worth saving the headlines of every media outlets for – every single piece of the runway left us all gobsmacked with need – ASOS and High streets shops may be losing clientele after this fashion show .

Our first pics are those of the below designers !! Kudos people you all make us highly proud!

DD – Hi ELLA  😆 We are thrilled to have you as the Inspirational face and diva on this edition of PURFECT^ESCAPE, you look flawless, I bet you woke up like that (eyeing her nappy hair and thinking how stunning)

ELLA  – Hello,  As you know, I have followed your blog Purfect Escape for a while and really admire your work, I’m absolutely thrilled to be on the cover of your E-Mag to Inspire people through my Kickstarter drive for THONBS (Soon to be ASOS of AFRICA).

DD – Just to figure you out in a second, on a desert island what three items will you absolutely need? 😛

ELLA – Bible, Lipbalm, and Water.

DD – The above is enough to tell us you are a woman of faith, with your looks intact and hydration to stay alive,  you are a fighter. Tell us a little about your motivation for starting THONBS, considering such heavy investment on the website and it’s underpinning technology you have managed to create a site which offers a shopping experience of convenience, affordability, reliability and style – ya nailed it woman 💡

ELLA – Well , the journey of a mile begins with a step. I started an online shop in Cameroon with potential to become the ASOS of Africa, with the right amount of investment and exposure. I have already sunk over £25,000 of my own capital into the business since May 2014 and in June 2015 it has already broke even and surpassed my expectations, the campaign is to seek extra funding and is an all or nothing campaign.

Hello  and welcome to my playroom. I am Milly  and  live on the east coast of the USA.  I love to play dress up and this blog is my playground.
